    easy mod, not really a mod per se but I think it greatly improves the look of alpha trion. Bought a waverly inspirations fat quarter piece of purple cloth from Walmart for a dollar and cut it to shape, there's enough cloth for maybe 4 capes total. I attached the cape by using two double sided 5mm pegs from shapeways, simply lay the cloth against his shoulders, then plug the pegs into the holes on the shoulders. Simple enough

    Neat idea! It definitely adds to the figure's personality.

    agreed and like i said, it involves no actual modding to the figure, all you need is the cloth and two 5mm posts, possibly a bit undersized or sanded down if possible

    this cape makes him look more like G1 Alpha Trion from the show, and show accuracy is good.

    Didn't know he comes with a sword. I've seen him in the store, but have not got him yet.

    I've got loads of weapons, I just meant rummage in my box 'o weapons anyhow.

    I would love to do this, but with a more tattered look.
